I am a true lover of the American standard song book DH,so I am very familiar with all the authors of those classic compositions.I've got 35 years or so of never going more than a few days without some Ella,Billie,Sara,Anita O'Day and so on. I spend a lot of time listening to the female jazz vocalists from the '30's-'60's and the female pop vocalists from the '50's-'70's.Artists like Sinead O'Connor,Linda Rondstadt and Natalie Cole also have impressive catalogs of great standard recordings.Then you throw in "pop" vocalists like Karen Carpenter,Dusty Springfield,Nina Simone,Patsy Cline,Laura Nyro and Annie Lennox who all having stunningly beautiful voices and you have one hell of a listening pool.And that's not to mention a ton of other women with a smaller output or legacy.

Well that reply got away from me.Point being I think we share an interest in similar music from the past if I correctly gauge responses of yours from older threads here on the forum.
